Company creates sports hijab for Muslim women

There's a new movement to make sports easy and accessible for Muslim women who wear hajibs.

A company called Asiya calls it modesty in motion and has created a way for women to participate in physical activities while still upholding their religious and cultural beliefs.

Their sports hijab covers the head, but is made for play.

"There shouldn't be a barrier as simple as clothing that keeps people apart. All girls no matter of their religion should be able to play sports, said a company representative.

Through crowdfunding, they have been able to bring this line of sports hajibs to the market.

They say they have also been able to sponsor more than 100 athletes.
